The Los Angeles Chargers leaned heavily on tight end Hunter Henry last season, so after letting him walk in free agency, the team needed and equally capable replacement. They found that in Jared Cook, who’s still one of the league’s most productive players at the position despite inching into his mid thirties.
525.5 receiving yards: Over (-115) or Under (-115)
Our pick: Over
Cook had just 37 catches on 60 targets last year with the Saints, but he turned those catches—the fewest he’s had since a shortened season in 2016—into 504 yards and seven touchdowns for a team plagued with quarterback problems. He should thrive with the Chargers, a team that looked to its tight ends on more than 21 percent of Justin Herbert’s targets last year.
4.5 receiving TD: Over (-120) or Under (-110)
Our pick: Over
Cook’s scored at least six times in each of his last three seasons, finding the end zone seven times last year with the Saints. The guy he’s replacing, Hunter Henry, had the second-most red zone targets for the Chargers last year and led the team on looks inside the 10. Cook should score at least five in such a tight end-friendly environment.
